Pathanamthitta: Model and woman activist Rehana Fathima was suspended by BSNL from the post of telecom technician. The Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited terminated her after she was arrested by Pathanamthitta Police for allegedly hurting the religious sentiments of people.

The Kerala police registered a case against Fathima on October 30 after the Sabarimala Samrakshana Samithi, a group that claims to fight for Sabarimala's traditions, accused her of insulting the Hindu beliefs with what they described as her provocative social media posts.

Ms Fathima, along with a woman journalist, had gone to the Sabarimala Temple in October. However, she was unable to enter the shrine due to protests. Later, some unidentified men also vandalised her house.

It is to be mentioned that so far, no woman has entered the holy shrine despite Supreme Court's order that lifted the ban on the entry of women of menstruating age inside the temple.

The Supreme Court order announced its order on September 28.
